One of the commonly asked questions in our candle shop is “Do you have anything that will cover the smell of cigarette smoke?” I am not a smoker, my wife is not a smoker, in fact nobody in my house smokes, my parents didn’t even smoke. I really don’t like the smell of cigarette smoke as is the case with many people. Often times the smell of cigarette smoke can become a point of tension between people living in the same house where one smokes and the other does not. We have a candle that will help eliminate the smell of cigarette smoke from your home and help relieve some of that tension. The name of this amazing candle fragrance is “Smoke Eater”. Before you picture an army of smoke eater Pacmen charging forth and devouring the smoke particles out of the air, that isn’t quite how it works.
There are a number of different sections of olfactory sensors in your nose, similar to the taste buds on your tongue. These sensors pick up different types of odors like sweet, dry, tart, spicy, etc. The particles from the cigarette smoke interact with a variety of these sensors causing your brain to recognize the scent. The fragrance from our Smoke Eater candles counter balance the negative smell of the cigarette smoke, neutralizing it. Then adds positive, pleasant aromas which causes your brain to tell you that you are smelling something which is good.
Like I started off this post, I have never lived with a smoker so I can’t speak from personal experience. However, we have repeat customers who live with smokers and swear by our Smoke Eater scented candles. We offer this fragrance in our scented pillars, votives, jars, tealights, and tins. Once you have had a chance to try this fragrance in your own home, leave a comment and let us know what you thought.
